Meet your Elopement Photographer and Guide

amber, elopement photographer

Hello, my name is Amber! I’m your photographer and guide for your adventure! I love the outdoors and experience all aspects of nature. I am also an introvert. My passion lies in helping gentle love-partners like you have the best elopement that you can ever imagine. It is an experience that is unique only to you, without all the fancy ballrooms and playing host to a hundred guests. No need to fuss with the all the decorations and trimmings. The focus is totally on you and your partner.

I have extensive experience as a travel planner and have helped couples like you who are peaceful at heart but want an adventurous elopement. I have taken couples to 43 countries. I have hiked to the highest mountains in the Swiss Alps, through the lush meadows in Sweden, and swam in the pristine lakes in New Zealand. In my opinion, Michigan is one of my favorite destinations.

Whether you like land, water, mountains, islands, or anything in between, I can find the destination of your dreams that is pristine and far from commercialism for your elopement.

Common questions about my elopement packages in Michigan

Here is great list of all of the wonderful locations that would be perfect for your Michigan elopement.

Almost all of the couples whom I’ve worked with had the same concern. But as you can see in my photographs, not a single person looked awkward. They look relaxed, natural, and happy. I have been photographing couples for many years and have worked with all types of personalities. I take your cues in terms of comfort level. I am not the “in-your-face” type of photographer. My goal to make sure that the both of your focus your attention on each other, and not on me! I know exactly how to go about this, so put your trust in me.

That is a very good question. Because mu schedule is fairly tight, I cannot change my availability because of the weather. However, it is still ALL GOOD! I’m the type of person who can take whatever comes my way and make the best of it. So, I encourage you to take a similar approach. Your perfect wedding day does not depend on perfect weather. It is more about how the both of you experience the moment. To be honest, I like a bit of rain! It gives photos a certain mood and feel that can be quite romantic.

I shoot at any time! Photos under a star-lit sky are particularly awesome! Nighttime photos out in the Michigan wilderness are really breathtaking!

Of course! I will be your personal guide every step of the way, from start to finish. I understand that the planning stage is quite overwhelming. Allow me to remove this burden from your shoulders so you can just enjoy the fun!

Most of the couples I worked with preferred to have just the two of them for this private experience. However, I totally understand if you want to include loved ones who are closest to you because you want to share your joy with them. The elopement can accommodate up to 20 guests.

I personally don’t think that only the best equipment can take good pictures. However, high quality, professional camera equipment is important. I use a 2 Nikon D800 body, various professional-grade lenses, and a Mavic Air 2 drone to tale some really cool shots!

Other places do have different legal proceedings in regards to marriage. Some places have simple laws while others might have more complex laws. If don’t want to deal with unfamiliar marriage laws outside of your state of residence, an easy workaround is to get your marriage license in your home state. Then, you can exchange your actual vows wherever you want to go. That is your true wedding day. The paperwork is just small stuff, so try not to fret over it.

Yes, indeed! This is what I love to do. I spend hours researching on hidden, secluded spots that are less-trodden. I pour through Google maps to find those hidden gems. Most of my clients come to me not having a clue where they want to go. Once we agree that I will plan this for you, I will share with you all of the information that I have on locations and help you choose a place where you and your partner will start your journey together.

Yes, I can. I love traveling and exploring new places on my own, and I have a lot of experience doing so. I use guidebooks, Google Earth, and research places to find a place that would be perfect for your special day. I am part of a global network of wedding vendors, so I can locate wedding service providers for your makeup, hair, flowers, wedding officials, etc. I have planned a large number of weddings remotely, and I have great confidence in my ability to plan a fabulous elopement for you in a place that I’ve never visited, and it will be just as spectacular as going to a place where I have visited many times.

I understand that this is out of our control and that currently, anything can happen. My goal is not to make your wedding photos another thing that you have to stress about. Although deposits are not refundable, I make the best effort to be flexible so you can still have a lovely elopement. I have been dealing with COVID-related issues for a year with my clients, and I am sure that we can find a solution that works for everyone. We can get creative like finding another date, changing parts of the plan, or putting your deposit toward a wedding portrait session, or anything else that you and I can come up with.

I am often traveling and my prices do fluctuate. Because of that, I typically don’t book clients more than 18 months ahead. For elopements, I book anywhere from 2-12 months ahead. I also usually leave some time on my calendar to accommodate elopements that couples decide to do at the last minute. So, if you want to elopement in the next several weeks, contact me! I might be able to fit you in.

That can differ depending on the time and session. For elopements, you can expect 200-400 photos. For large weddings, usually 400-800 photos. Portrait sessions are about 100. Quality is always more important than quantity, so I always give you the best photos that I take of you.

I create an online gallery of your photos where you can order professional quality prints, announcements and frames from the photo labs that I partner with. I send test photos to the labs to ensure that the prints are beautiful and perfect. I also offer albums that are archival heirloom quality. You can choose your favorite images, and I will customize a design layout for you. Contact me for more information about albums! You have personal rights to print so you can also print them at any other printing lab that you prefer.
